Auto trany pressure sensor????
Im normaly over on the Zuk board but Im trying to get my buddies Auto two wheel drive stepside 88 K1500 movin and I need to know what this part is.
First off its a 350 FI V8 thats been tweeked by Jasper and the Auto is Jasper also. It was leaking tranny fluid and wouldn't shift out of first. I really don't know jack about autos so I need some help.
It was leaking from what looks like a large oil pressure sensor. It's about 3" tall 2"dia round with one wire lead on top and a tranny fuid line on the bottom. It screws into a line on the driverside right next to the bell housing about 1/2 up.
We took it off b/c it was leaking and I welded it all up (just to keep it from leaking) and we put it back in. And it still won't shift out of second. Im assuming its a pressure sensor for the tranny fluid that is needed to shift????
Any help would be appriciated. We took it to pepboys and asked parts and a few jack assed mechanics,,,,,,as usual they didn't know ****!
